The purpose of the Jenks Prize is to recognize outstanding software engineering contributions in the field of computer algebra and to encourage future excellence in such research and development. The prize is named in memory of Richard Dimick Jenks who, during his life and professional career, provided leadership to the computer algebra community and made important contributions to software engineering applied to algebraic computation. The prize will be awarded bi-annually in even numbered years. The first prize was awarded in 2004. Henceforth, a competition will be carried out every other year.

As of the Summer of 2006, the prize is now officially named the ACM SIGSAM Richard Dimick Jenks Memorial Prize.
